Reporters staffing the newsroom on Saturday, March 17, had some inkling that a large crowd had converged on downtown. But initial calls to police downplayed the events, noting large crowds but not too many problems. It wasn't until late Saturday night, and after the deadlines for most editions, that police confirmed that there had been a disturbance and that it was serious. But at that hour, few details were available. The next day, Sunday, police said 10 juveniles had been arrested and witnesses were quoted saying the crowd numbered in the hundreds and had been rowdy.

The NFL sent a memo to every owner and team president today denying a report that it had received a video in April of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee inside a casino elevator. The Associated Press report Thursday night said a video of the February incident was sent by an anonymous law enforcement official to NFL security chief Jeffrey Miller. Rice's $35 million contract was terminated by the Ravens when a video of the punch surfaced on TMZ on Sept. 8. The NFL issued the following denial to owners and team presidents in this memo obtained by The Baltimore Sun: "Our office has found absolutely no evidence to support the claim of the anonymous 'law enforcement source' that he sent a video to the NFL office or that he received a telephone call to his 'disposable cell phone' from an unidentified female using an NFL line.

WHAT POSES the real threat to Manuel Antonio Noriega's right to a fair trial?Is it the airing by Cable News Network of a few leaked recordings of privileged conversations between the ousted Panamanian dictator and his legal defense team?Or is it the bald fact that federal agents taped an unknown nubmer of telephone discussions involving Noriega and his attorney and legal staff, and thus may possess important clues as to the direction his defense strategists will take, clues that a prosecutor could use, if he were so minded, to parry effectively his adversary's courtroom thrusts?

Whoever gave or sold the security camera footage of Ray Rice and the then-Janay Palmer to the website TMZ must have known it was them. Did they plan to take down a professional football player ( "Ravens, NFL say they tried to obtain video of Rice assault," Sept. 9)? No questions have ever been raised about this individual nor has that aspect of the case been investigated. While everyone is so upset about the Ray Rice incident, we should be more concerned about what touched it off. Booze and money flow very freely at any casino, and with that mixture problems invariably arise.

“He's headed toward Route 50. If he gets that far, there's going to be a real problem. … I don't want him to hit somebody.” Those words, from a driver on I-97 calling police about a car headed the wrong way on the highway, turned sadly prophetic early Saturday. Read full story of accident . Police were not able to catch up to the red sedan filled with three teenagers before it got onto the wrong side of U.S. 50 - heading west in the eastbound lanes - before it slammed head on into a black BMW near Route 424 south of Crofton.

The head of the county school system's athletic programs - after reviewing three separate game tapes - said he saw nothing "abnormal" about the number of penalties in last week's Oakland Mills-at-Centennial football game, which was stopped in the third quarter by game officials as a precaution. "I saw no egregious behavior by any side," said Mike Williams, coordinator of athletics, who watched the tapes three times each. "I saw penalties that were called, but they were not abnormal over the course of the [typical]

It was obvious almost from the beginning that asking persons whether they believed O. J. Simpson was guilty or innocent of killing his ex-wife, Nicole, was tantamount to holding a national referendum on the credibility of America's police.Polls show African Americans are more ready to believe police would lie to get a conviction and thus more willing to believe Mr. Simpson may have been framed. Into this maelstrom of conflicting black and white beliefs enters Mark Fuhrman, whose name now nears Bull Connor in epitomizing abuse of police power.

Belated recognition has come to metal tape cassettes. These are tapes coated with particles of metal alloy instead of the usual metal oxide particles. Such tapes languished on the market for more than a decade, but now their advantage is being appreciated.In the past, audio fans balked at the higher price of such tapes -- typically about 30 percent above the cost of ordinary high-quality tapes -- because they really couldn't hear much difference.This situation has changed with the advent of compact disks, which made the difference clearly apparent.

"Our Nixon," a documentary on Richard Nixon's presidency based on Super 8 home movies made by aides John Ehrlichman, H.R. Haldeman and Dwight Chapin, is the TV surprise and delight of the summer. It premieres at 9 tonight (Aug. 1) on CNN with multiple plays throughout the month. This is absolutely first-rate history that instantly transports you to the tumultuous times of the late 1960s and early '70s when Richard Nixon soared so high and fell so low. I admit I am complete Watergate and Nixon-era junkie, so bear that in mind when you listen to this podcast preview I did for Baltimore's WYPR-FM (88.1)

As hundreds walked through Baltimore on Thursday to protest a police shooting in Missouri, uniformed officers were recording their every move. The decision by the Baltimore Police Department to record the march raised questions about how the tapes would be used and why authorities had chosen to record the event. Participants said they saw as many as a dozen officers shadowing the crowds and filming them, almost like a documentary crew, as the protesters walked to the Inner Harbor or spoke with officers.

On the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation as president, his admission of guilt has finally been made public in a 1983 videotaped interview with him by an old White House aide. Speaking of the "smoking gun" White House tape in which he talked about raising hush money for the arrested Watergate burglars, Nixon tells aide Frank Gannon: "This was the final blow, the nail in the coffin. Although you didn't need another nail if you were already in the coffin, which we were.

Late in Quentin Tarantino's 1994 film "Pulp Fiction," Marsellus Wallace - a criminal boss played by Ving Rhames - banishes prizefighter Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) from Southern California, telling him "You lost all your L.A. privileges. " If only it were that easy to kick Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling out of L.A. There is simply no person, institution or network in today's Los Angeles with the clout to force powerful Angelenos to repent their sins - much less drive them out of town.

Authorities have concluded the investigation into the Johns Hopkins gynecologist suspected of recording patients during exams and determined that no one will face criminal charges, according to court records. Dr. Nikita Levy committed suicide in February 2013, amid an investigation into cameras and hard drives that police have said they believe he was using to record patients. Though his death pre-empted any prosecution of Levy, police launched an investigation to learn whether there were co-conspirators.

Police released 911 dispatch tapes Monday that reveal how residents in a Germantown neighborhood tried to draw attention to a bizarre scene where police say two toddlers were killed by their mother and another woman in an exorcism last week.

Holy Frijoles in Hampden and Frederick's on Fleet in Canton are the subjects of a cable TV show being taped in Baltimore this week. The show, being developed for the TruTv network, appears to be a variation of "Wife Swap," the reality show in which two unalike families "swap" mothers. In this show, it's the owners of unalike establishments who take up temporary residence at each other's bar. That meant Holy Frijoles owner Geoffrey Danek took his laid-back management style to Frederick's on Fleet for three nights of filming, while Frederick's part-owner Jim Saufley, a part-time boxing coach, brought his stricter style to Hampden.

Footage of a man opening fire into a crowd of people outside a Beltsville strip mall earlier this week was captured by a surveillance camera, and Prince George's County Police are now hoping it will lead them to the suspect. Nobody was injured in the Tuesday morning gunfire, but the man firing the weapon is wanted in connection with the incident. About 1:20 a.m., officers were called to the 11400 block of Cherry Hill Road, where an investigation showed the suspect had gotten out of a car and opened fire on a group of men. The surveillance video, released Wednesday, shows the men scattering as the suspect shoots.
